The board of sadervisors will, ac
cording to usage, meet the second
Tuesday in December, which this
year is "Dec. 11, to attend to such
business as may come before it. Un
questionably the most important
matter to receive attention will be
the new court house proposition, and
in this connection it may be said the
present board is to have the privi
lege of completing all the pre
liminaries and starting the active op
erations and since to it will
be given the glory of getting the
new building started, and the name
of every member of it, together with
the names of those who composed the
board which voted to submit the
proposition to issue bonds . to the
amount of $ 125,001). should go into
the corner stone. There are several
who were supervisors at the time the
board acted on the proposition, who
are not of the board now, among the
number being ex-Supervisor Joseph
Fitzpalrick, of Milan, who introduced
the motion to submit the question of
bonds, and championed it through
the board. Ia fact, all the minutes
of the proceedings relating to the
new building so far, and whatever is
to come should be preserved for fu
ture generations with a place in the
corner stone of the temple of justice
which is toi rise as a mouument to
those who will build it.
Action to be Taken.
The first duty of the board on its
meeting in December will be to can
vass the vote, and having declared
the proposition carried, la place the
bonds, and then to fix permanently
the location. Plans for the new
building will next come nnder con
sideration, and after this is disposed
of, there will be little left to do but
to build.' The necessary prelimina
ries will take up considerable time as
a matter of course, but there is no
reason why everything may not be
disposed of this winter, even to the
letting of the contract for actual con
struction. It will necessitate a series of spe
cial meetings to accomplish all. but
representing a progressive; peoplo, as
those of Rock Island county have
proved themselves to be, through the
ballot, and inspired by an ambition
to do their duty to that to which
they are to have the credit of mak
ing the substantial beginning, the
present board may be relied upon to
push things this winter. Further
more, the winter season will be the
best for the country representatives
to get away, so that, all things con
sidered, we may look for a grand cor
ner stone laying ceremony early in
the spring, an occasion which, by the
way. Roek Island proposes shall be
made an event that will stand out in
the history of western Illinois in a
manner that will make all connected
with it fuel proud.
Can be Built In a Season.
In conversation this morning V.
II. Edwards, of the Edwards & Walsh
Construction company, probably the
largest contracting firm in the three
cities, said the building ought to be
put up ia a season with ease. "If
the contract is let early enough for
the contractor who receives the
award to begin the tirst thing in the
spring, there ought to be no reason
whatever why the county should
not begin the year 189fi in full occu
pancy of the new building. Next
year will be a splendid time to build;
ull things are favorable, both as to
material and labor."
Corporal Robert Fivey, of the reg
ular service at Rock Island arsenal,
who is well known in this citv, be
ing the messenger between the isl
and and this city, met with a pecu
liar mishap at David Don's store last
evening. Corporal Fivey was in the
back part of the store, and it bcinT
dark, did not observe the elevator
shaft, and in attempting to walk
across fell in, dropping to the ground
in the basement, a distance of six
feet. Fortunately, however, the cor
poral was not injured, the only effect
being a little stiffness of the" limbs
today, and Fivey himself is too much
of a soldier ta let a little thing like
that bother him much anyway.

The sorrowful news of the death of
Mrs. A. S. Cox, at Canton, III., was

She had many acquaintances here,
having been a former resident of Rock

it is learned that Mrs. Cox met her
death in a most terrible manner.
She was carrying a lighted lamp
Thursday night, which she let fall,
the blazing oil setting fire to her
clothing, and before the flames could
be extinguished she was burned from
head to foot. Death resulted from
her sufferings yesterday morning.

The Sterling Gazette says Engi
neer Wheeler has already commenced
to spend some of his time with dif
ferent maps spread out or hanging
on the wall before him, running a
quick eye and the tip of a led pencil
from what will eventually be a point
on the Hennepin canal, not far from
Wyanct. to different points on Rock
river. The engineer will within a
few days take a horse and carriage
and drive all over that part of the
country, and it is perfectly safe to
assume that when he gets" back to
Sterling he will know as much about
every mile of it as any of the oldest
settlers. A survey will follow.
The Hie Work.
After the survey will come the big
work. The magnitude of this may
be somewhat understood from the
fact that it will take about a year to
get it what we may call fairly under
way.' The force oT men employed
will be large. The gentleman says
that in securing the laborers prefer
ence will be given to men belonging
to the neighborhood, and that hobos
and worthless characters will posi
tively be barred out. The probable
term of completion of the work on
this section will lie a matter of years.

Over Hemenway's Election.
A REPUBLICAN SHERIFF IS HEW.

Offlce the Democrats Mare Bold Lone
and Welt The fteeent lacoatbent -Dtp-ty
Small wonder the republicans are
rejoicing so much over the election
of F. C. Hemenway to the office of
sheriff at the recent election. It is
the tiret time the party has had pos
session of the oflice for 12 years, al
though desperate efforts have been
made at each election within that
period to regain possession since
John M. Reticker captured it in 1882.

faith to which Hemenway attaches

year last mentioned Reticker was
elected by 2.456 to 2,207 for Morris.
having a pluralitv of 24. In
1886, T. S. Silvis"had S.6-J1 votes
to 8.654 for Parson Mortran. a
plurality of 27, the campaign be
ing one of the meet momentous
and eventful in the county's historv
equaled only since by that of 189u,
when lion. Ben T. Cable was elected
to congress, and in both of which
years the republicans put forth everv
effort, and fought with all the des.
peration and determination possi
ble. In 18!0 Gordon had 4.4S.1
votes, to Tearsall's 4.111: a plurality
of 342. these facts clearly showing
that with anything like favorable cir
cumstances the democrats have been
able to elect their candidates to this
office, and that Hemenway should
have been elected this fall is only a
part and parcel of the effects of the
republican sweep throughout the
country, due to a combination of
misrepresentations of existing condi
tions and the indifference of demo
crats who remained at home on elec

nun uay. i tie succers oi ll-.-mcn-
way, as that of McKeever. cannot be
construed either as a party victory
or a testimonial to individual worth
of candidates. The candidates in
each instance glided into oflice on
the wave that swept over the state.
The democrats have thowt what
they are capable of doing in the past,
under a fair test of strength. Thev
will demonstrate the same thin
again in the future.
Deputy Sheriff 811 vt.
With the retirement of Sheriff
Gordon, there will leave that oflice
an official who has be?a identified
with it in a most responsible sens in
all, 14 years, and a more effi
cient, accommodating oflicia! has
never been connected with coun
ty institutions. Reference is here
made to T. S. Silvis. who com in in
as deputy in 1874 under Sheriff Au
gust Huesing. and serving the two
years to which the tennre of the oflice
was then limited, he was again called
to the same office under She iff Ret
icker, at the expiration of whose
term he was elected sheriff him
self, and he would have succeeded
himself by an increased vote had
the succession of his candidacy been
possible under the law. He might
have had the nomination again last
summer, had he not positively de
clined to run. During Sheriff Gor
don's term be has been his riffht-hand
man as uepuiv. ana there is no one
m the countv so familiar with everv
detail of the oflice as Sharp Silvis,
and the public, irrespective ot partv.
will regret that his long period of
laiimui service lor the countv is now
to be terminated.
It is learned today that Sheriff
elect F. C. Hemenway has been pre
vailed upon to cutke an alteration in
his tirst deputy, and that instead of
